The Packers Lounge is excited to host our first video call in show "Around The Lounge." Got a webcam? Want to talk Packers? The next generation is here now. Today's guest? None other than Dale Z.
I've got a ton of things to do before Christmas, I can't find a massaging bath pillow anywhere and a billion feet of snow is on its way. So, let's skip the analysis and do something fun, and more importantly easy.
I know I am usually the master of bringing disaster, but for today everyone needs to calm down. In fact, we may even look back at this as yet another turning point. Let's take a closer look at the picture.
I blame this entire thing on Mason Crosby and Jarrett Bush. Maybe someone will get that figured out sometime soon. Every Packer fan knew that fundamentals and the kicking game were going to cost us a win somewhere down the line. Looks like the fans were right, again.
I felt like using a mean Ted face picture today, which led me to a little early morning thought. That's always a dangerous process, but I have now decided that Ted Thompson is safe in Green Bay... no matter what.
It was July 2008, "The Summer of Favre," yet with all the attention being given to that PR nightmare, Ryan Grant wanted a little attention too. Five months after the Packers had told Grant and his agent that they would "take care of their own" and sign him to a new contract, Grant was a holdout.
Happy Holidays Lounge. The Bacon is back for another crappy article. But luckily, the greatest trash talker will keep it short as I am about get snowed in from a huge blizzard coming my way in Wisconsin. It's like a hurricane, you know its coming, but you cannot do anything to stop its path.
Quit bitching about Tramon Williams. Al Harris did the same things a billion times. The refs were right in making the calls if you go by the book, but last night was a little over the top. Tramon Williams is making plays, that's good enough for me.
Wow, am I behind. I've been so busy I don't even know what the hell is going on (not that I ever did). This six pack is as much for my good as yours. Here's six Packer stories that I personally missed this week.
Yeah I know, I have been slacking lately. With the holiday, and the end of another semester, time has been a valuable commodity. Yet better late than never, here are your quick hits from Thursday's game against the Lions.
As the Green Bay Packers knocked the stuffing out of the turkeys known as the Detroit Lions, Packer fans everywhere were surely in a thankful mood. After watching the game, here are five things this Packer fan and writer is thankful for. Feel free to add your own in the comments section.
I just wanted to take a moment to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at The Lounge. There is a little more to be thankful for this season, and as always I thank each and every one of you for being faithful readers.
The injury bomb fell on Green Bay, Wisconsin this Sunday, and the fallout will surely hit Charles Woodson the hardest. Just as many Packer fans were marveling at the relative good health of this team, Aaron Kampman and Al Harris, two Packer stalwarts that have had few injuries throughout their careers, were hit hard by misfortune.
During all of the excitement this week, the story of fired Packer's employee Mike Wood has nearly disappeared. Undeterred, we were able to catch up with Mike for a brief interview concerning the incident.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
